2 Oh! Lemuel, my hope,
Oh! Lemuel, mv joy, I'll tellyou wholl'be at de ball,
My wooly beaded boy. Dere's Nelly Bly, you know,
And Juliana Snow, Dere's cane-brake Kitty likes de boys,
And she'll be sure to go.
3 Oh! Lemuel is tall,
Oh! Lemuel is fair, Oh! "Lemuel has gone to-day'
To take de morning air. He makes de fiddle hum,
He makes de banjo turn, He rattles on de old jaw bone,
And beats upon de drum.
The pause over the Word more, to be used only In the repetition of the Chorus.
